In that company the little Duc won't have much chance, you'd need the 750 or 900 at least for it to feel 'spirited'.
The BMW wouldn't have mindblowing performance either but they do have a lot of torque. I find the suspension too soft and the machines just to big for me, though I'm only 165cm.
The Suzuki will certainly have plenty of mumbo, but like the Honda, won't handle anywhere near as good as the Ducati.
The Ducati is actually a superb handling bike.
The Suzuki does nothing for me looks wise either, and it's rather heavy.
The honda is pretty light and if like any other Honda will be very reliable and have excellent quality of finish.
Likewise the BMW.
The Ducs are sometimes quirky to plain out shitboxes, but they do 'feel' very nice to ride, and certainly very different to the Jap pair in this bunch.

I'm biased, but I'd go the Duc, and I'd have a look at Buell too, my borther just bough one and it feels pretty neat so far, though I haven't ridden it much as yet.
